PNG Ventures has announced a contract with Pacific Harbor Line to provide liquefied natural gas for its locomotive fleet which serves the Port of Los Angeles.

PNG Ventures has 100% ownership of ALT LNG and its production facility located in Topock, Arizona. ALT LNG provides approximately 800 to 1,000 gallons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per delivery to Pacific Harbor on a schedule of every four to five days. Use of LNG fuel is expected to reduce emissions compared to traditional diesel-fueled locomotives.

Mike Stolzman, vice president of Pacific Harbor Line, said: ALT LNG has been a reliable and competitively priced source for the LNG we need to fuel our locomotives. The fuel was put through a stringent testing and approval process and it has proven to meet all required fuel and safety standards.
